With the political season in full swing, we checked in with several of our leading publisher partners to see how they have been impacted by political advertisers and what their plans are to leverage access to their audiences.

People often think of user experience and monetization as two opposing sides in a zero sum game. This perception couldn’t be further from the truth.
